I was able to collect $42.00 more dollars from the shop but we also spent too much money this weekend. Frustrating. Nothing, stupid like eating out. Just oil change $42.00, Prescriptions $57.00, gas for car,$47.00, Groceries, $75.00. So you see we are still in the hole. I just need to climb out a little faster. So as I was sitting here feeling sorry for myself the bell rang and one of my older customers brought in a flag that had been whipped by the wind. I was writing up his card and I noticed a pile of mail Hubby had put on the ironing board, so after customer left I opened the mail.
I received both CC bills one for studio and one for personal and we will not face those today. A plan will be formed to deal with those when the studio opens. For today I am okay.
I also received a letter from the Orencia company and they paid $467.00 worth of my last doctor bill so I will only owe $20.00. What a blessing.
I also had two parents that paid registration and tuition for September. $260.00 so we are back to where I was before the weekend. Now I pray that I get many hemming jobs of 2-3 hems and I will do them before I leave. I will make it!
I defrosted two chickens yesterday and cut them up and southern fried them. We had mashed potatoes,corn from the garden, biscuits, fresh fruit salad and Marion Berry pie. I sent plenty of leftovers home with older couple that ate with us and then took a pie to one of my sewing customers who is laid up with a broken leg.
When we got to church this older man was teasing me about going on the trek and almost killing myself the week before. So I told him it was too bad that I was making my famous fried chicken and biscuits and he had to go home to a can of soup. He sincerely apologized it was so funny. His wife has lupus and is quite ill so I really believe they were going to have Campbells.
I won't have to cook dinner tonight as Hubby and I can eat leftovers. Have no idea what we will have for dinner tomorrow and the pantry is low. I mean we are out of meat options. When the studio opens I will be able to stock up.
Just a little to do in the shop today, unless more business comes in. I have plenty of housework, and ironing so no excuse to sit around and do nothing. Which I have perfected to an art form. If any one wants to get into a "sit around and do noting contest" I will win!
Out My Window: Hot, hot, hot, garden is crazy, weeds are crazy, but I will have tomatoes soon. Pulled about 10 lbs of sweet and red onions from the garden. We have tons of new potatoes, cucumbers and squash. Love my garden. I am going to do a stir fry again as Hubby loves stir fry.
Have a great and productive day!
